snippets: peachy

 

Just a few snippets from our week. Paddy has worked most of the time he's been home, but we have managed to sneak in plenty of family time too - mostly lazy afternoons at home interspersed with spontaneous cafe visits (Lalie is officially addicted to baby-chino's. Ooops!).

While Paddy was away I went mad rearranging the furniture and redecorating, only to change it all back again because it didn't feel right. Nothing felt right. I was desperate to make the place feel more homely... only now do I truly realise that the only things that make a home are the souls within it.

For the moment, life is peachy.

 (Until Monday when he leaves again. I know, I know... cue violins!)

  4. I can't even believe how lovely everything on your blog is-- particularly all the shots of your daughter's little legs and feet.

    Looking forward to seeing more,
